Manage Env Variables

Env file contains various settings, one row – one KEY=VALUE pair. And then, within your project code you can get those environment variables with function env('KEY').

The .env file stores configuration variables for your application and .env.example is simply an example of what might be in the .env file! You can easily rename .env.example to .env to get started.

The .env file also contains your app key which is used for encryption in your app. In Laravel, you can maintain separate configuration from your application. For example:- Your local dev environment has different database credentials than production environment. For more detail, view Laravel Documentation.
